Snickers are, on behalf of the entirety of Scotland, campaigning for the country to be given the day off to watch their Euro 2020 opener.
Scotland playing in the European Championships is a momentous moment for the whole nation, with the Scots not having qualified for the tournament in over 20 years.
You’d imagine that every Scotsman across the land would be glued to their TV screen to watch them take to the field against Czech Republic in their group opener.
However, some absolute genius has decided to schedule the game for 2pm on a Monday, when a great deal of the Scottish population will be at work.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has, to date, given no suggestion that the Scottish people will be excused from their work in order to watch the fixture.
However, Snickers are intent on changing that, sending out the below tweet, establishing their campaign to give the Scots the day off work.
@ScotlandNT‘s first game this summer kicks off at 2pm. On a Monday. During work. Unacceptable.
So, we’re out on the campaign trail today asking Government to give everyone the day off. If they do, there’ll be free Snickers for Scotland.

Even if their campaign is unsuccessful, and the Scots are forced to head to work, they’ll find a way to tune in – there’s no way that they’d miss it.
The ball is in your court, Nicola, either you force companies to endure the slowest two hours of business in recorded history, or you simply tell them to shut up shop and enjoy the footy.
